Just checking to see if anyone had d/l SP3 for XP? I checked MS but didn't see a link to d/l. There are other places but I'm not real comfy d/l this kind of thing from an unknown site. Thanks for any details you can send my way. Bill

Well now I feel silly! For some reason I thought I was still running sp2. I'm looking around the update site.... I can't find a way to d/l sp3 on the pages that should have it. Must be they are more aware than I am of what I am running. Right click my computer and look at properties, yup, I already have sp3.:rolleyes: The older I get the more I forget!! Take care, thanks for the fast reply. Bill

I have put SP3 on a number of computer, and I've only run across one issue. On certain HP models equipped with AMD processors, a file updated in SP3 can cause a blue screen before windows completely loads. The file being loaded during startup is for Intel processors only. There is a registry change that needs to be made in order to avoid this problem.

All the other systems I've used it on, other than that ~3 year old HP have worked great, be they AMD or Intel based. I haven't noticed any new bugs or annoyances in SP3, and it runs just as smoothly as SP2 did (i.e. tons better than Vista, LOL)

Here is a link to download the entire service pack installer: http://www.microsoft.com/downloadS/...A8-5E76-401F-BE08-1E1555D4F3D4&displaylang=en

This is the file I use to update multiple PC's, so they each don't need to download the SP separately.

Must have been typing the same time as you were, Peter. Yup, I already have sp3. I use FF 99.9% of the time. I do try and log into MS once a week with IE just for updates. Thanks again guys!
